Former first lady Pat Nixon watched Trump on the “Phil Donahue Show” in December 1987. The Manhattan builder so impressed her that she told her husband, the former president who resigned the Oval Office in disgrace in 1974.

Dear Donald,


I did not see the program, but Mrs. Nixon told me you were greaton the Donahue show.
